2003 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera Coupe - 46641 miles - All-wheel-drive - Twin Turbo - 6sp Manual

VIN: WP0AB29943S686841

I have owned this car for 1.5 years. It has been cared for meticulously. Waxed every 6 months. All maintenance is up-to-date. Garage kept and rarely driven in rain. Black on black interior. The exterior is in excellent condition. A few very minor rock chips on the front from road debris. The passenger side mirror has a scuff on it.  Hard to get this to show up in the pic.  The interior is in great shape.  There are 2 minor scuffs on the passenger seat as shown in the close-up pic of the seat....on left side of bottom of the seat. There are some light scratches from fingernails on the inside of the driver door behind the handle.  Tires are about 50% worn.


The following modifications were performed at 43k miles:

1. FVD Brombacher Software Upgrade - This software was recommended by Pro-Tech Motorsports in Greenville, SC. A well-known Porsche service facility and race shop. It boosts hp from 420 hp to 490 hp. The tune has been installed for 5000 miles, and can be removed easily if you wish.

FVD Software Power Gains:
Max. Power -- 360 kW (490 HP) @ 6000 rpm
Max. Torque -- 735 Nm (542 lb.-ft.) @ 4000 rpm
Max. Speed -- 318 km/h (198 mph)
Max. RPM -- 7000 rpm
Acceleration 0-100 km/h (0-62.5 mph) - 3.9s


2. High Flow Air Filter that came with the FVD kit.

3. FVD Billet Diverter Valves on turbos - allows Turbos to operate more efficiently and reduces turbo lag.

4. 3M Clear Bra - protects bumper from chips caused by road debris

The windows were tinted at 43k miles, as well.

Options and their cost when car was purchased new (if cost is known):

-Sunroof

-Bose High-End Sound Package - $1625 - (Bose audio system; Eleven upgraded speakers with 10" subwoofer)

-Xenon Headlamp Package - $1,090 - (Projector beam lens Bi-Xenon headlights; Wash/wipe headlight cleaners)

-Door Sills in Stainless w/Model Insignia - $425

-Leather Dashboard Package - $2,980


This car is a blast to drive. The performance is amazing. Tons of power and all-wheel drive so the tires don't spin. If you are familiar with Porsche cars, you know the handling is excellent as well. Previously, I have owned a 2001 M3 and a 2000 Honda S2000. This is the best performing car by far. The classic Porsche body lines look modern and sleek. People are always guessing this car is a 2009 or 2010 model.

I am selling this car because I don't get to use it enough. This is a second car, and I have only put 5000 miles on this car in 1.5 years. I am looking to get a 4-door sports car so I have more room for passengers and gear

Clean title in hand

VW confirms development of 10-speed dual clutch, 134-hp/liter diesel

Fri, 26 Apr 2013 17:43:00 EST

Each year, the Vienna International Motor Symposium showcases some of the up-and-coming technologies automakers are engineering for the use in passenger cars, and Volkswagen AG CEO Martin Winterkorn revealed some big developments VW is working on for its future products. Winterkorn discussed a multi-faceted approach that VW is looking to reduce its fleet fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
Some of the bigger news he discussed included a "high-performance" diesel engine that will produce 134 horsepower per liter and a 10-speed DSG automatic transmission. While no specific applications were mentioned, we can only hope this is for the Audi R4 we keep hearing about.
Another topic he touched on that caused us to perk up our ears was had to do with VW's plug-in hybrid technology. While we know the PHEV versions of the Audi A3 and Porsche Panamera are on the way, Winterkorn also said that these two models will be followed up by Golf, Passat, Audi A6 and Porsche Cayenne plug-in models. Scroll down for a press release highlighting the automaker's future fuel-saving initiatives.

eGarage video features Helmuth Bott's personal Porsche 959 prototype

Fri, 12 Apr 2013 20:01:00 EST

"We thought we were going to build a super-911," said Peter Schutz, former CEO of Porsche AG of the development of the Porsche 959. That was before it started getting expensive. At that point, Helmuth Bott, Porsche R&D director got frightened. Costs ballooned because of the all-wheel drive, sequential turbocharging and other technology Porsche had never even thought about when it set out to build a 911 to compete in Group B. Schutz continued, "The amount of resources we were committing got totally out of hand." Instead of pulling the plug, Bott doubled down and drew on the strength of his brilliant team to build a car whose impact is still echoing aross the industry.
"It's probably one of our most prized possessions" says Don Leatherwood, Director of the Brumos collection where Dr. Bott's personal prototype resides, and where Frazer Spowart went to see the car and create a video for eGarage. Check out the sights and sounds of the 959 before it was the 959, and get personal takes on the car from Hurley Haywood, Peter Schutz and Don Leatherwood. Keep reading to see the video.

2015 Porsche Macan Turbo

Mon, 06 Jan 2014 11:57:00 EST

The misinformation first started back in May of 2007 - more than six years ago - when word came that Porsche was developing a compact utility vehicle to fill out its product line. Rumors swirled that the German automaker's future "Roxster" would be based on the then-upcoming Audi Q5. By September of 2010, the name had changed to "Cajun," but the vehicle was still expected to be "based heavily on the Audi Q5," said reports in the months that followed. One year later, the first test mules were spotted, the mechanics hidden beneath barely disguised Audi sheetmetal, which did nothing to give the upcoming model its own identity. And even after Porsche announced "Macan" as the vehicle's production name in early 2012, articles stated that it would "arrive on the same chassis as the Audi Q5, though with suspension, brake and engine tweaks suitable to the Porsche range."
It's no wonder that most still consider the all-new Porsche Macan nothing more than a heavily massaged Q5.
To help lift some of the mystery surrounding its latest release, Porsche hosted us in Germany for an in-depth look at its new crossover (while Europeans call it a "sport utility," its car platform allows us to call it a proper CUV). The technology workshop offered us insight to the design and mechanical execution, and it concluded with a short test ride. The trip was both enlightening and educational - and it left us with a whole new perspective on the Macan.
